X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

they are available NOW...

my 135i is fast...but the ///M's are just amazing. the power and torque delivery doesn't even begin to make sense. did you ever play with matchbox cars or hotwheels when you were a kid? remember how you could just grab ahold of one and slide it across the floor so fast and so easily that it was like nothing? well...this engine is that powerful. it's like God Himself reached down, grabbed your 2 and-a-half ton SAV, and is now pushing it down the road toward the horizon with perception-bending speed. yes...it is THAT fast!

I believe you!
This thing only needs 4.3 to 60
Also it traps at 110mph with 12.8 ET
That's just one crazy SUV

Where to order???

How come the x5 isn,t on the BMW website? I am looking at building a 2010 4.8 but now if the X5 comes as a //M// I may look into that!! It looks great that is for sure.
What is the price point?

X5///M starts at 85,400 + destination...
X6///M starts at 88,900 + destination...

most vehicles will list out around 93-103

the cars are just about to launch...so they aren't on the website yet...

Just saw one at the dealership
X6 M, black
Sticker was showing few options and the price was 89K
Is the base price really 88.9K?

yes...88,900 plus 825 destination...base price. you probably saw the launch supply car...which comes out to $94,875 after the options and is carbon black metallic with silverstone II merino leather and piano black trim.

Sounds right
It was black on gray with some dark wood (possibly black)
I noticed just a few options, like 3-4 which were in fact about 3-5K combined
But why was the final sticker 89?

There is a possibility i saw 98 instead, but i kind of doubt it
I'll look again when i pickup my car

P.S. Is this car (M) available in red mettalic color like x50i?

the top number is the number you saw...the base price. either that, or the sticker was wrong.



it is not available in the vermilion red metallic...but instead the melbourne red metallic.

Saw the X5M and X6M in the showroom today at Motorwerks (Bloomington, MN) - I'm not a big fan of the X5M styling (tacked on rear fender flares) but it looks mean. As for the X6M... just awesome. Both are very expensive!!! I ended up trading my 335i convertible today for an 09 X6 xDrive 35i. Loving it!!

I saw one at BMW San Diego. White X6 M with a dealer installed option or two. $97k. I really like the front bumper and valence.

Mein Auto: Not a BMW
I love both the X6 and X5 M versions! What awesome machines! But OMG! Holy crap are they kidding me with those prices? Why do BMW's have to be priced so into the stratosphere?? I am in my late 30s and have a very good income but there is no way I would ever pay these prices!

perhaps you would rather a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S for 130k that performs just about as well.

the pricing really isn't bad...when you consider how much a loaded up X6 50i goes for...

A 4-wheel drive automatic SUV badged as an M "car," why does this god-awful abortion of a vehicle exist? BMW M is now officially no better than AMG.
